If you already have your copy of Watch_Dogs or are planning on picking it up soon, make sure you download the Watch_Dogs Companion: ctOS Mobile app. I haven’t really had a chance to fully explore what the app does yet, but what it basically does is allow you to play against any Watch_Dogs player, live, and on any console or PC. So what I’m assuming is that regardless of which version of Watch_Dogs you actually own, you can use the ctOS app to play against any one, on any console. You might not even need to own Watch_Dogs to enjoy the app. All you need is a valid uPlay and Xbox Live or PSN account to enjoy it.
The ctOS app basically allows you to play as the police against any Watch_Dogs player. Again, I haven’t had a chance to play this yet but it does sound like an interesting take on multiplayer, one that I can play while I’m away from my machine. I’ll be playing WAtch_Dogs throughout the whole week so hopefully I’ll get a chance soon to try out the app and play a few rounds.
Below is the full description for the iOS version of the app. Android should be the same.
